A good playlist for lifting can make or break me when I need to hype myself up for a lift. Ever do a speed set of deadlifts to work on fast twitch muscle fibers? You know what I mean then.

The following are my favorite songs to get me through even the toughest of gym sessions. Some of the songs are recent releases, and some are older, but they’re all going to get your heart rate up and help motivate you.
